Guest Post: Kale 3 Ways

Today Jenny from ChocolateNChildren is sharing 3 ways to enjoy kale! Growing up, one of my Dad’s favorite meals we something we called. Kale & Sausage. I was home a while back and my mom made it for us all and it was so good! I’ve never made it for my family because, well, they don’t like Kale. This year we’re doing a CSA and we had kale two weeks in a row. Since I love Kale, I’m excited, and I’m desperately trying to make something that everyone will eat. I’m making some progress and I hope that as the kids

Classic Lemon Bars Recipe

Photo Source: Food Network I love desserts. My mother-in-law’s pies are at the top of the list (her recipe makes 6 pie crusts at a time. Yummmm!!). I don’t have a specific recipe for a dessert that is my favourite but when I’m making it if it isn’t fast and easy I don’t like it. If I am eating it from someone else I love it to be fancy! Today I’m craving lemon squares so here is a Classic Lemon Bars recipe I found from the Food Network that resembles the ones I like to eat. I have not tried

Amazing Grout Cleaner

I should be finishing off the last two items on my April list of crafts (watching a Craftsy serger course and finishing top quilting a baby quilt). I got to checking Pinterest and found an “Amazing Grout Cleaner” homemade recipe by Unique. Just Like Everyone Else. I (foolishly) didn’t really believe it was as amazing as was claimed. I also didn’t have ammonia so I replaced it with bleach (note I did NOT MIX as this is toxic, I REPLACED). I started on a small spot. In the middle of my front hall (duh!). Thankfully it is a small space, but still

Freezer Cooking

With a small family I carefully consider the food choices both in purchasing and cooking. I prepare a monthly menu plan to reduce cost and efficiently use up the foods that we have purchased. I try to reduce processed foods but some days it’s either frozen chicken nuggets for dinner or a peanut butter sandwich. When I do have bursts of energy for cooking or baking I like to try to prepare frozen items from scratch that I know our family will enjoy and that will be a healthier choice. I’ve been inspired by Money Saving Mom and her “4

The Candida-Free Diet 1

On Monday (yesterday) I started my first day of a 2-week “candida diet”. As I understand it, I am to reduce sugar, yeast and carbs to cleanse the yeast in my body. I’m also hoping for a little bit of inch/weight loss in addition to the promise of feeling better. I found a fantastic 3-week menu plan from the Yeast Diet website ( I linked you to the meal plan part of the website). As I am only doing a 2-week trial I took the items I liked and customized it to my palate. I’ll keep you updated to how
